This gem is derived from the fossilized shell of the Ammonite. Ammonites are the fossil remains of marine creatures that became extinct millions of years ago. When they died, they sank to the sea bottom and became preserved in the sediment. Over millions of years the earth changed resulting in the sediment that contained these fossils to be pushed to the surface of the earth. Preserved ammonites were found in these pockets of earth. There compacted, compressed ammonite shell was then crushed, heated and weathered through aeons of tectonic upheaval and unearthed in mosaic-like patterns of iridescent Ammolite.
Found exclusively in southern Alberta, Canada. Ammolite is found deep in the shale formation, where over 70 million years, tectonic pressure and mineralization transformed them into the beautiful spectrochromatic material we now recognize as Ammolite. Ammolite was recognized as a gem in 1981. Like a fingerprint, no two stones are exactly alike; each gem is unique in color and pattern. Ammolites bright intense colors gives one an instant appreciation when you get a first glimpse of this gem. Deep gold, Emerald Greens, Bright Pinks, Rich Red and blues all move and shift as you look at the Ammolite. Ammolite is a mesmerizing gemstone that forms in a wide range of patterns and colors.
